Being a subject matter expert of sorts in the workplace safety field, we're often asked about electric cars and how they will change the way service technicians are trained.
Of course the answer is yes, but not necessarily in the only way they are thinking.
The advanced Tesla technology requires its own level of first-of-its-kind training and won't likely be seen entering a jiffy lube any time soon for a "top off", but some time in the future these high tech vehicles and others like them will be visiting lesser qualified facilities and the workers there will need to not only be trained on HOW to service them, but more importantly - how to be safe while doing so.

Question for fellow Tesla enthusiasts:
If you were to bring your car in the shop, would you ask if they know the proper safety procedures to work on the car, or is that their responsibility?
